Murder at a seance.

Classic Parlor Murder Mystery
A rich man is murdered in his mansion during a seance. The seance seemed to be more of a magic show to me. Present are a handful of people who could, and some did, have motives for killing him. A police captain investigates, his assistant providing a little comedy relief.
I've seen enough of these to choose the likely murderer by the the time the initial interviews are over. After the second murder, I was positive.
The director did a good enough job keeping the story moving so that I didn't lose interest from all the exposition. No mean feat considering Jack Mulhall plays the police captain.
I downloaded the 471MB MPEG4 file. Video and audio quality are good.
